James Donaldson & Sons has been operating for over 160 years and is still within the Donaldson family over six generations later. Throughout time, JDS has grown exponentially through innovation and acquisition - having invested in key businesses that compliment the group's current capabilities.

Our eight businesses trade and operate independently, with each specialising in a particular sector. However all of them in turn operate within the JDS group and in doing so share best practice, innovation, purchasing synergies and market analysis.

Our commitment to being a responsible and sustainable group is reflected in our policies, and we have reinvested £10 million in the last 4 years to grow and improve the business.
